Expensive kitty…

Published October 24, 2014 by Iphis of Scyros

Why are cats so expensive?

Last night, I noticed one of my cats didn’t want to eat.  When that kept up this morning, I called the vet, and they gave me an appointment this afternoon at 2:15.

With one thing and another, I ended up getting there early, about 1:30ish.  It was past 4:00 by the time I got home.

It turned out that the reason he hadn’t wanted to eat was because he has an abscessed tooth.  But his kidney problems are getting worse, so I have to switch him from the $12 for 24 cans ordinary cat food to medicated low-protein cat food that’s $38 for 24 cans.  Plus he needs three medications, and will have to go back to the vet’s (after the antibiotic has kicked in) to have that tooth fixed.  This visit was $340; how much will the dental work cost?

He yowled the entire time home, even more annoyingly than on the way there.  And it turned out that part of the reason he was yowling was to say “it’s wet back here!” because he had an accident in the carrier on the way home.  So I had to spend ten minutes or so trying to clean cat urine off the back seat of my car.  And since it was a cloth carrier (and rather old and ratty anyway) I had to just chuck the thing as unsalvageable.

And, of course, that new and super-expensive cat food is not good for a healthy cat, so I have to find a way to get these two cats not to constantly eat off each others’ plates.  Maddening.

I’m glad he’s going to be all right, but why does he have to be so expensive?
